Korea Dem Peoples Rep
September 9th 2005.

Today we visited the DMZ and the freedom village right on the border between north & south Korea. We had to show passports twice and be accompanied by soldiers all the time. We had to dress conservatively, the conservative dress meant i couldn’t even wear my sandals. Not point or make gestures at the Korea Northn soldiers over the line who had their binoculars well & truly watching our every move.

At one stage the Korea Northn soldier watching all us tour types actually hid behind the post to avoid being photographed! - we actually got to stand in Korea North (we crossed the military demarcation line in the meeting building!)
